2022 Poly Photo Club High School Photography Awards

This was an incredible year for students at San Dieguito High School Academy as they returned to school in person after 1.5 years of remote learning. The creativity and enthusiasm channeled by these students is a force to be admired. Working on a variety of projects during the year, students became familiar with a range of photographic genres and techniques. Some of these projects included:
  • Landscape Photography
  • Macro and Abstract Photography
  • ‘Faceless’ Portraits
  • Personal Still life
  • Surreal Photo Composites

The students’ creative output was impressive and inspiring. Their photography instructor Laura Olden shared with us, “I am so proud of what the students at SDA accomplished this year. It has been a joy to see each student hone their creative voice through their photography. Each individual’s style and unique perspective shines through in their work.”

Images were submitted digitally to our club, and Poly members judged the images – a difficult task! Monetary scholarships went to the first, second, third and five honorable mention winners.
